Emotionally Intelligent Leadership Development

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Teams and Leaders

Stephen Covey’s best selling and award-winning book “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” is STILL the “Go To” book for all those people who are committed to Continuous Personal Development. This workshop refreshes the 7 Habits and applies them to the roles of Individuals, Teams or Leaders who want to use proven concepts to shift their paradigm of life and work.

The first three habits surround moving from dependence to independence and self-mastery


1. Be PRO-Active

Take responsibility for your reaction to your experiences, take the initiative to respond positively and improve the situation. Recognise your Circle of Influence and Circle of Concern. Focus your responses and initiates on the centre of your influence and constantly work to expand it. Don’t sit and wait in a reactive mode, waiting for problems to happen (Circle of Concern) before taking action

2. Begin with the end in mind

Envision what you want to achieve in the future so you can work and plan towards it. Understand how people make decisions in their life. To be effective you need to act based on principles and constantly review your mission statements. Are you – right now – who you want to be? What do I have to say about myself? How do you want to be remembered?

3. Put First things First

Matrix of importance vs urgency that Stephen Covey and Dwight Eisenhower used in deciding where to invest their efforts. Categorising our tasks into what is important and what is urgent. Learning the art of prioritisation and over-coming all those “time-stealers” which distract us from achieving our Goals.

The next three habits talk about Interdependence and how we work with others


4. Think Win-Win

Genuine feelings for mutually beneficial solutions or agreements in your relationships. Value and respect people by understanding a “win” for all is ultimately a better long-term resolution than if only one person in the situation had gotten their way. Think Win-Win isn’t about being nice, nor is it a quick-fix technique. It is a character-based code for human interaction and collaboration.

5. Seek first to understand, then to be understood

Use empathetic listening skills to genuinely understand a person, which compels them to reciprocate the listening and take an open mind to be influenced by you. This creates an atmosphere of caring, and positive problem-solving. Applying the skills of inter and intra personal skills of Emotional Intelligence.

6. Synergise

Combine the strengths of people through positive teamwork, so as to achieve goals that no one could have done alone.

Continuous Improvement Culture

The final habit is that of continuous improvement in both the personal and interpersonal spheres of influence.

7. Sharpen the Saw

Balance and renew your resources, energy and health to create a sustainable, long-term, effective lifestyle, optimising wellbeing and building stress resilience.

The application of neuro-science enables us to manage our behaviours and attitudes and in turn we can learn how to manage how to optimise our Heart-Brain Coherence.

In essence, one is always attempting to integrate and master the principles outlined in The 7 Habits at progressively higher levels at each iteration. Subsequent development on any habit will render a different experience and you will learn the principles with a deeper understanding.

Hear what our Customers are saying about this workshop:


I just wanted to drop you a line regarding your delivery yesterday in Birmingham.

There are so many things which map directly to our company:

All of the 7 habits:

  • Be proactive. Take charge and assume responsibility, live life above the line both personally and professionally
  • Begin with an end in mind. Have a vision for what you are trying to achieve/the end goal and align your actions accordingly.
  • Put first things first. Prioritise and don’t get distracted by urgent but unimportant tasks/Issue creep
  • Think win-win. Build rapport and positive relationships to get the most out of a business relationship
  • Seek first to understand, then to be understood. Active listening, take time to really listen to the other person and only then make recommendations or take actions. Listen to hear – and not ONLY thinking about what your next question is going to be
  • Synergize. 1 plus 1 equals 3, work as a team to produce better results – think interviews, searches, projects, planning etc. etc.
  • Sharpen the saw. Don’t work yourself to death, take time to recharge before setting off again. Clear mind, reflect, evaluate, and go again.

“Most importantly for me EQ helps to establish a mindset and understanding as well as behaviours and attitudes.”

“Brilliant, engaging delivery, looking forward to the next one already!!!” 

“This week, I had the opportunity to spend time with my colleagues from the Commercial Excellence team at the Emotionally Intelligent Leadership training course organised by Mobile Team Challenge Ltd (MTC Europe). I want to express my gratitude to Barry Bailey for conducting two days of captivating sessions. The training offered valuable insights into emotional intelligence and provided practical guidance on how we can enhance our effectiveness as leaders and improve our teams.”

“I cannot express enough how much this experience has positively influenced my personal growth and professional development. The course was incredibly enriching, filled with great insights and practical knowledge that I’ve found to be extraordinarily valuable. I believe that the knowledge I have gained will not only contribute to my current role within our team, but can also be applied across the wider business.”

The Emotionally Intelligent Leader


The Harvard Business Review has hailed emotional intelligence as 

“a ground-breaking, paradigm-shattering idea, one of  the most influential business ideas of the decade.” 

Emotional intelligence or EI is the ability to recognise, understand and handle your own emotions, and those of the people around you. A development of Self Awareness and Other Awareness makes E.I. the critical personal development tool for those wanting to excel at Leadership and those wanting to create or participate in High Performing Teams. People with a high degree of emotional intelligence know what they are feeling, what their emotions mean, and how these emotions can affect other people. 


Leadership research tells us that the lack of interpersonal skills and the inability to adapt are the two principal derailment factors in leadership careers.

With leaders in organisations spending up to 80% of their time talking and understanding others, changing the nature of how people communicate and work with each other can be the single most powerful way a leader can bring about performance breakthroughs.

Using Business Emotional Intelligence assessments combined with MTC Experiential and Accelerated Learning Techniques in our Leadership Programme enable organisations, of all sizes, to address leadership challenges such as:

  • Our senior management are not demonstrating the calibre we need to lead our future business...”
  • Post-merger the leadership team is struggling to work together…”
  • We need to build the skills of our operational leadership to embrace our changing workplace…”
  • New leaders have to be effective from day one in their role as a senior executive in this business…”
  • Founders of the business need to develop their leadership to match the people and sales growth…”

Emotional Intelligent assessments combined with Daniel Goleman’s leadership model provide a rich picture of the skills, capabilities and financial potential of an organisation’s talent.


Business Emotional Intelligence assessments for leaders provide:

  • Benchmarks against 5000 international leaders
  • Feedback on 8 critical emotional drivers and behaviours that predict success
  • A map to a leader’s most authentic leadership style (Visionary, Coaching, Democratic Commanding…)
  • Insights into blind spots that stop leadership potential
  • A blueprint to shift leaders’ ability to deliver results that achieve different outcomes.
  • A common language for developing and expanding the whole leadership culture to enhance global performance.
